Main Line Rail
Transport authorities and operators are meeting today's challenges with Thales' intelligent, high-value solutions. Smart, information-driven rail signalling technology significantly increases capacity, safety and security. Increasingly interactive solutions build greater return on investment from start to finish benefiting operators, passengers and freight delivery.
With one in two of the world's population living in cities, the need for non-stop urban and inter-city transport has never been greater. Integration and interoperability at every level of the transport system are key to smooth, continuous metro operations and enhanced safety and security. Thanks to Thales's integrated, secured and safe solutions, all critical data can be centralised on one system and accessed through a single user interface.
